Lumpyoatmeal saidI just got back from the pharmacy; got a shingles vaccine. My insurance doesn't cover it so it cost $230; ouch. It's a live vaccine; I can feel those living viruses crawling around under my skin; maybe a chest burster will come popping out like in the movie Alien.
Anyhow, it looks like the flu vaccine is available; I'll go to my doctor to get that one.
The rest of you wankers better get your flu shot as well.
I ran by our pharmacy today, that gives flu shots free. They're gonna contact me tomorrow and let me know if we qualify for free. Otherwise our primary doctor does it for free. But with him we've gotta make an appointment, prolly take a while. That's Plan B.
But thanks for reminding me! That's what prompted me to drop in to our pharmacy today while doing errands. It's still Summer here, actually almost always Summer, so I don't have the seasonal changes to remind me these things are due, no kids to prepare for school in the Fall, nor employment to orient me. I know it's September, but after a while that just becomes a word, with little additional significance.
We always get flu shots. I have for decades. I'd like to get the shingles vaccine, too, since I had shingles about 20 years ago, very unpleasant. But here the shot's about $270. I suppose the VA would give it to me for free, but I wouldn't trust them to take my pulse. I may splurge anyway, not something I ever want to experience again.
